Being top-tier retaining wall contractors, we at Schnabel offer a range of permanent wall solutions, adeptly overcoming unique project challenges and environmental factors.

No matter the environmental complexities or operational demands, our status as top retaining wall contractors ensures the delivery of the most effective solution for our clients.


In the realm of permanent retaining wall construction, particularly in cut or partial cut-and-fill scenarios, Schnabel’s solutions stand out. As top retaining wall contractors, we specialize in permanent tieback, soil nail, and cantilevered pile walls.

These are not only practical and economical but also crucial for minimizing disturbances to adjacent areas like roads, structures, or natural landscapes. Given their longevity (often spanning 50 to 100 years), these walls are meticulously assessed for corrosion potential against the specific environmental backdrop.

Our team, with its focus on durability, ensures that every component, from tiebacks to soil nails and wall facings, is crafted to withstand the test of time. The wall facings, often composed of reinforced concrete or similar materials, are designed for both structural strength and aesthetic harmony with the environment.

Boasting over fifty years of experience, Schnabel has established itself as a leading retaining wall contractor in America. We specialize in customizing our retaining wall constructions to meet the distinct needs and environmental conditions of each project. Our team of experts is prepared to guide you in selecting the most appropriate retaining wall solution for your project.

Schnabel designed and constructed 15 permanent tieback walls with a total length of over 8,500 ft. for the Tennessee Department of Transportation during the widening of U.S. 321 on the edge of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

The widening of US 321 through several miles of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park just outside of Gatlinburg, TN utilized Permanent Tieback Walls to minimize the impact to the surrounding environment and preserve the beauty of this majestic area. It took a team approach between Schnabel, Blalock and Sons, Inc. and the Tennessee Department of Transportation to construct one of the largest permanent tieback wall projects in the nation.
